How Bostik’s Web Adhesives Improve Facemask Manufacturing

  • Improved Process Flexibility

Web adhesives offer excellent adhesion to a variety of nonwoven materials. As a result, they provide process and performance advantages, including ease of use for bonding or laminating nonwovens in medical facemask assemblies.

  • Simplified Production Methods

Additionally, we’re able to provide manufacturers with our web adhesives already in web form. This means that manufacturers need only equipment for heat activation. They do not need to invest time, money or resources into further bonding application equipment.  

Further, our web adhesives undergo strict quality control processes before being sent to manufacturers. These processes reduce scrap waste and potential plant variations, delivering a consistent, high quality product that’s ready for assembly.
